US will help Poland with Ukrainian refugee influx
Kamala Harris, the US vice president, has assured Poland's head of government, Mateusz Morawiecki, that the United States will continue to help Ukraine's neighbours cope with the hundreds of thousands of war refugees flooding into their countries.
On Tuesday Harris held separate telephone calls with the leaders of five countries that form Nato's eastern flank, including the Polish prime minister.
The US vice president said Washington would continue to support Ukraine and its neighbours as they deal with refugee flows and other humanitarian needs.
Russia attacked Ukraine on Thursday, but the invasion appears not to be going to plan. The military operation, which the Kremlin likely wanted to be very swift, is now in its sixth day and no major Ukrainian city has been captured yet. Thousands have died in the conflict so far, including more than 500 civilians, according to the UN.
More than 600,000 civilians have fled Ukraine, the UN also said. Most of them have found refuge in Poland.
